We are a group of five churches made up of local people from different walks of life. We love to see new people and everyone is welcome at our Sunday services.

Our churches are in the five villages of Kinnerley, Melverley, Knockin, Maesbrook and Maesbury. These villages lie in a rural area of North West Shropshire quite close to the Welsh border. Oswestry and Shrewsbury are the nearest towns to our benefice.
All of our churches are open in daylight hours and you are welcome to visit  them.
In addition to our Sunday services there are various other meetings and events that take place  and you should be able to find details in  "What goes on?"
Our benefice is part of the Oswestry Deanery within the Diocese of Lichfield.
Further information about the individual churches including times of our services can be found in the "Our Churches" section of the website.
